Hyundai Elite i20 starts at a price of Rs. 5.6 lakhs for its petrol variant and goes up to Rs. 7.6 lakhs whereas its diesel variant start at a price of Rs. 6.8 lakhs and go up to Rs. 8.8 lakhs. Ford EcoSport on the other hand starts at Rs. 6.8 lakhs for its 1.5 Ti VCT MT variants which go up to Rs. 9.9 lakhs. The EcoSport with EcoBoost petrol engine starts at a price of Rs. 8.3 lakhs and the top end variant of the EcoBoost lineup goes up to Rs. 9.7 lakhs. The diesel EcoSport is priced at Rs. 7.4 lakhs while the top end variant goes up to Rs. 10 lakhs. In the same price segment we have the Renault Duster as well as Maruti Ertiga as well that fall in the compact SUV category challenging the EcoSport whereas hatchbacks like Maruti Baleno and Swift, Volkswagen Polo and Honda Jazz etc. pose a threat to Hyundai Elite i20. For a comprehensive analysis of which other cars can compete with Hyundai Elite i20 and Ford EcoSport you should first jot down whether you wish to get a hatchback or a compact SUV or whether you’re looking at the price tags and comparing the cars. Only when you have a clarity regarding these issues can one state which other alternates are there for either of these two cars.
Coming to a comparison between Hyundai Elite i20 and Ford EcoSport then first and the foremost, at the price EcoSport seems to be a better option since it offers more comforts and has a sense of a sedan and SUV at the same time while Hyundai i20 is a luxury hatchback. It is definitely comfortable but EcoSport is better. There is a lot of leg space in the EcoSport in comparison to the i20 and also the extra boot space etc. This being said, the number of features in the i20 are more than what EcoSport offers but then all basics like Bluetooth connectivity, parking sensors along with climate control and multi-functional steering etc. are available in both. In terms of driving EcoSport is tad bit better especially when you’re driving at higher revs. Overall therefore, I would say EcoSport is a better option but give both the cars a try before settling down on which one suits you better.
